Also now available is the DusTreatTM range of products for Dust control in many aspects of large and medium industries. Immediately making more than 30 years of expertise and product development to be available to Sub Saharan African customers.
The DusTreatTM portfolio of treatments are recognised in the ecomagination site of GE – www.ecomagination.com.
This also includes the road/surface area and materials handling dust control in these industries, enabling a return on investment and a return on Environment for our customers.
Used in the mining, power, and steel industries, DusTreatTM Road Dust Control Treatment Programs are specifically formulated to control fugitive dust from unpaved plant and mine ramps as well as haul roads. Compared to other dust suppressants, DusTreatTM programs help reduce water usage, increase visibility on unpaved roads, and decrease diesel fuel consumption along with associated CO2 emissions by operating Water Trucks and Graders less frequently.
ImproChem also offer specialised equipment and are qualified to handle Dust suppression equipment installations. Visit the Dustaway Website under Links for more information on equipment.
DusTreatTM road dust control treatment programs can reduce water needed for dust suppression at mines and decrease fuel consumption at mines and decrease fuel consumption at mines and crease fuel consumption by operating water trucks less frequesntly Road Dust Control Treatment Programs can reduce water needed for dust suppression at mines and decrease fuel consumption by operating water trucks less frequently. At one gold in Nevada, switching to DusTreatTM DC9112 Program from a water and magnesium chloride treatment on 7 miles of haul roads reduced water use for dust suppression by 90% or 110 million gallons of water over a 7 month period, equivalent to the water consumption of over 1,300 average U.S. households during that period. This also reduced CO2 emissions from fuel consumption by 490 metric tons -- equivalent to the CO2 emissions of over 165 average cars on U.S. roads during that period.
DusTreatTM road dust control treatment programs can lower consumers' overall operating costs by reducing water, truck and road maintenance expenses such as grading frequency. At one gold mine in Nevada, swtiching to the DusTreatTM DC9112 program from a water and magnesium chloride treatment on 7 mines of haul roads decreased water use for dust suppression by 90% and reduced water truck and grading operating costs, resulting in a total savings of over $375,000 over a 7 month period.
There are more applications such as these on African Mines as well.
